Tech Talk about Maze Search Algorithm!

Date: 2016 | December 11th |10:00 to 10:45 am.

By : Jeffrey Cheng, Julian Lee and Stepan Gorelenkov ( all in Grade 8)

Target audience: Programming experience and algebra I. Interested in Software Algorithms.

Software/ Hardware : RobotC by CMU Robotics Academy + C++ and Mindstorms + various 3rd party devices The team have created a maze-navigating robot to simulate a rescue mission. It will identify victims with thermal sensor and dispense rescue kits along optimal paths calculated by their search algorithm (unweighted Dijkstra Algorithm). This project utilized 9 sensing devices including mostly I2C– based 3rd party sensors. Team also has designed and 3D printed their components to house sensors as well as tackling intense challenge.

Tech Talk about A Chess Prototype Algorithm - MinMax!

Date: 2016 | December 4th |10:00 to 10:45 am.

By : Alexandar Lisenko

Target audience: Programming experience and algebra I.

Alex will demonstrate his customed built LEGO Tic-Tac-Toe Machine. This is no normal machine. The software written for this machine is different from typical ad-hoc/brute-force method. It is programmed with the Minmax Algorithm which will never lose a game.. Minmax is a prototype algorithm used by most 2-players game, such as Chess.
